For everyone’s health, services are offered via videoconferencing only. Children, teens and adults that are appropriate to work by videoconferencing and would like to start therapy will be considered after a free consultation with Anne Tyler, MS, LMFT.

Tyler Institute provides individual and family therapy to children and adolescents struggling with emotional, social, and psychological disorders.

Therapy for High Potential Children, Teens and Adults

If this is your first time seeking services for yourself, your family or children, and you are hesitant about the process, you have come to the right place. My approach is active, engaging, positive and solution-oriented. There are many times when insight, encouragement & creative resources are needed to make it through stressful times. And, when you or your children are dealing with emotional, behavioral or social challenges, I bring extensive experience and unique insights to solutions designed for you. It is my goal to cultivate your strengths, teach you effective coping skills and instill confidence in your own abilities.

I am an expert in treating creative, driven and gifted adults, and high potential children and their families. I teach clients how to perform Clinical Self- Hypnosis for several issues. I provide therapy that includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Narrative Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Positive Psychology interventions, Clinical Self-Hypnosis training, Play Therapy and Executive Functioning Skills training.

I work from a team-oriented perspective. I work with the families, schools (to help with 504 and IEP evaluations and ongoing collaboration concerning issues and interventions for the child) and medical professionals.

Play Therapy

Play therapy is a unique approach to working with children. It is a specialized mode of therapy that can be used with any life challenge and situation and works well with gifted children. It is respectful to the child’s experience of their life and is a child-centered approach to counseling. Children are especially receptive to this type of therapy because they are given freedom to express their concerns and work through their challenges in their own way.

Clinical Self-Hypnosis

Pediatric self- hypnosis training has been shown to help alleviate many problems with children. With this approach, children and their parents are taught how to do self-hypnosis in order to control bad habits, physical symptoms, and other conditions such as anxiety and sleep issues. My training was provided by the National Pediatric Hypnosis Training Institute. Clinical Self-Hypnosis training is also very helpful for adults to alleviate anxiety, decrease pain and improve sleep. 

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) was developed by Zindel Segal, Mark Williams and John Teasdale, based on Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program. This approach has been used to help individuals cope with medical issues and chronic pain, as well as, symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Narrative Therapy

My work as a therapist is frequently based on Narrative therapy techniques. Narrative therapy is a strengths-based approach to help people re-story, or re-create the stories that guide their current beliefs, perspectives and decisions. It is a transformational therapy that helps you align your intentions and hopes for yourself, your children and your family into actions in everyday life.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral approaches to therapy are empirically based effective methods to help children and adults learn new skills and change ineffective patterns of behavior and thought.
